This is the definitive English cooking apple which is green with a white flesh and which cooks down to a tart puree. It is great for pies and toppings as well as baked apple. It is available all the year round.
This is by far the most widely cultivated pear in North west Europe due to its good flavour characteristics due to its higher sugars and its excellent storage properties. It can be eaten at any stage of ripening from crisp to very ripe depending upon ones taste.
This very distinctive apple has a great taste to match. It’s crunchy with a floral aroma and sweet, tangy flavour with the added benefit of not browning after cutting making it not only great for eating but also ideal for salads or lunchboxes.
We believe it is important to promote the healthy natural alternative to sweets that Apples can provide and this starts with education at a young age. That is why we support the Tesco Eat Happy Project by offering school visits or talks. If your school is interested in visiting why not click on the ‘Tesco Eat Happy Logo’ to learn more
